Questions? Ask A Librarian!

The Research Question Workshop

What does it mean when you’re told to “write an essay”?
How do you come up with a good question?

Join us to explore methods to find and act on research questions, how to narrow a question’s focus, and develop and implement research strategies to complement your question. And there will be snacks!

Wednesday, October 28 from 4-5 in Library L17 with David Gruber (dojo) and Annie Downey (library).

Copyright & Your Thesis

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 / 4:00pm / L17

A group of seniors are delivering their theses to the Registrar’s Office, Spring 1963.
Retrieved from Reed Digital Collections, http://cdm.reed.edu/u?/reedhisttxt,13732 (accessed 4.2.14)

What is fair use? Who holds the copyright on your thesis? Why does citing images and data matter in academia?

Join Reed College librarians and students as we talk about these questions and more in a panel discussion on Copyright and Your Thesis. This interactive session will cover what you need to know about images, data, & fair use. Although we’ll focus on copyright and theses, everyone is welcome. Bring questions! Snacks and conversation starters provided.
